The manuscript of this book was found recently by researchers examining the papers left by Anton. It introduces a new verse form, invented by Anton's late friend, Zaiden Levavi: the limeruck. Each limeruck uses the word #*%, once, and there are other rules. The book takes the form of a verse primer for budding poets. It develops the possibilities of limeruck form, with illustrated examples. There are many illustrations, some music, one fundamental equation, and suggested exercises.
